Our Best Year Ever!

Thanks to over 2,000 generous donors, this year's event raised the highest total amount ever.



Because Nature Needs Our Focus

Bird-a-thon 2017 was held from May 12–13. 

Each year, people across the state participate in Mass Audubon’s largest fundraiser, Bird-a-thon. The centerpiece of Bird-a-thon is a competition where teams representing wildlife sanctuaries and programs attempt to identify the most species of birds in a 24-hour period. Bird-a-thon serves as a reminder of the variety and abundance of wildlife that surrounds us and our role in protecting their habitats. 

Since the event began in 1983, thousands of dedicated supporters and team members have raised over $2 million for Mass Audubon, its sanctuaries, and its programs across the state.
